SOUND OF A FLOWER

 

"I'm always looking for new voices, even  on ancient instruments, with a unique, personal and modern approach to jazz. I've found it in the music of Ma*JiD."

~Russ Davis,Voice of America/MOJA Radio  

Described as having “a unique blend of improvisation, groove, and technical sophistication” by legendary musician Wynton Marsalis, Ma*JiD is cut from a different cloth.

A violinist, composer, and a bandleader, Ma*JiD graduated from the Juilliard School with a B.M. and an M.M. in Jazz Performance from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College.

His music expertise knows no bounds, lending his talents to various artists including Wynton Marsalis, Mr. Cheeks (from hip hop group The Lost Boyz), Antonio Hart (jazz saxophonist), Craig G (from hip hop collective The Juice Crew), John Blake Jr. (jazz violinist), Dyme-a-Duzin (from band Phony Ppl), Itzhak Perlman (classical musician/ world known violinist), Keith David (actor/singer/voice actor), Isaac Stern (Grammy award violinist), and Regina Carter (jazz violinist).

In 2008, Ma*JiD was the recipient of the prestigious Edward and Sally Van Lier Fellowship Award for composition.  In 2011, he and his eponymous band, Ma*Jid, released a debut jazz EP in 2011 called The Basilisk as well as two mixtapes on Soundcloud called Sfumato Symphony Volume 1 & 2. From 2015 thru 2017, Ma*JiD was named a Rising Star Violinist by Downbeat Magazine. In 2018, SOUND OF A FLOWER, his second studio album was released.

Ma*JiD's music is an eclectic blend of styles and influences, which pull from European classical, jazz, and hip-hop.
